Airgain Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/16/17 -- Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today reported unaudited results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.
Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Sales increased 35% to $12.6 million from $9.3 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in product sales.
Gross profit increased 43% to $5.5 million (43.4% of sales) from $3.8 million (41.2% of sales) in the same year-ago period. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales was primarily driven by an increase in the sales of board-mounted antennas, which tend to have lower per unit pricing and higher gross margins.
Total operating expenses increased 19% to $4.3 million from $3.6 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel expenses to support the company's sales and marketing and research and development initiatives. The increase was also due to higher administrative expenses incurred as a public company, including expenses related to the company's public equity offerings.
Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $1.1 million or $0.12 per diluted share, an improvement from a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(660) thousand or $(0.99) per diluted share in the same year-ago period.
Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, fair market value for adjustments of warrants, and share-based compensation) increased to $1.4 million from $837 thousand in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).
Fourth Quarter 2016 Key Performance Indicators (compared to same year-ago period)
- Total customer devices increased 29% or 3.4 million devices to 14.9 million devices
- The average number of antennas per device increased 11% to 2.96
- The average selling price per device increased 7% to $0.83
Full Year 2016 Financial Results
Sales increased 56% to $43.4 million from $27.8 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in product sales.
Gross profit increased 66% to $19.3 million (44.4% of sales) from $11.6 million (41.9% of sales) in the same year-ago period. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales was primarily driven by an increase in the sales of board-mounted antennas, which tend to have lower per unit pricing and higher gross margins.
Total operating expenses increased 32% to $15.8 million from $12.0 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel expenses to support the company's sales and marketing and research and development initiatives. The increase was also due to higher administrative expenses incurred as a public company, including expenses related to the company's public equity offerings.
Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $2.2 million or $0.40 per diluted share, an improvement from net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(2.7) million or $(4.30) per diluted share in the same year-ago period.
Adjusted EBITDA increased to $4.6 million from $1.2 million in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

"2016 was an exciting year for Airgain," said Airgain president and CEO, Charles Myers. "First and foremost, we became a publicly traded company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Operationally, we experienced continued growth in our core gateway and set-top-box markets, while making accelerated progress in some of our key emerging markets, and even expanding into newer markets, like automotive and small cell. This led to impressive results across the board, with our sales up 56%, gross profit up 66%, and adjusted EBITDA more than tripling for the year. On top of that, we generated $2.2 million of net income, or $0.40 per share on a fully diluted basis."
"Q4 echoed the positive performance throughout the year, especially in terms of our top and bottom-line growth. From a customer and operations standpoint, we continued to gain traction in products targeting cable operators, with increasing demand and new design wins in the gateway and set-top-box markets. We are also experiencing demand for our products in the enterprise and retail WLAN segments."
"As we move in to 2017, we will continue forward with our strategy of growing organically as well as inorganically when and where it makes strategic and financial sense. Our continued focus on R&D initiatives will enable us to not only bring new solutions to the market, but also to continue expanding into other strategic markets."

Airgain cautions you that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the company's current beliefs and expectations. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding our future organic and inorganic growth, focus on R&D initiatives, expansion into other strategic markets and our ability to execute on our key strategic initiatives. In addition, the unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 included in this press release are preliminary and represent the most current information available to management. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by Airgain that any of our plans will be achieved. Actual results may differ from those set forth in this press release due to the risk and uncertainties inherent in our business, including, without limitation: adjustments to the unaudited financial results reported for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 in connection with the completion of the company's final closing process and procedures, final adjustments, completion of the audit by the company's independent registered accounting firm and other developments that may arise during the preparation of our Annual Report on Form 10-K; the market for our antenna products is developing and may not develop as we expect; our operating results may fluctuate significantly, including based on seasonal factors, which makes future operating results difficult to predict and could cause our operating results to fall below expectations or guidance; our products are subject to intense competition, including competition from the customers to whom we sell, and competitive pressures from existing and new companies may harm our business, sales, growth rates and market share; our future success depends on our ability to develop and successfully introduce new and enhanced products for the wireless market that meet the needs of our customers; we sell to customers who are extremely price conscious, and a few customers represent a significant portion of our sales, and if we lose any of these customers, our sales could decrease significantly; we rely on a few contract manufacturers to produce and ship all of our products, a single or limited number of suppliers for some components of our products and channel partners to sell and support our products, and the failure to manage our relationships with these parties successfully could adversely affect our ability to market and sell our products; if we cannot protect our intellectual property rights, our competitive position could be harmed or we could incur significant expenses to enforce our rights; and other risks described in our prior press releases and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including under the heading "Risk Factors" in our final prospectus. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof, and we undertake no obligation to revise or update this press release to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement, which is made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Airgain's condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA). We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors with which to analyze our operating trends and performance. In computing Adjusted EBITDA, we also exclude stock-based compensation expense, which represents non-cash charges for the fair value of stock options and other non-cash awards granted to employees, as well as the fair market value adjustments for warrants. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash operating expenses, we believe that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash expense allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time.
Our Adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Our Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider Adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the last table at the end of this release.
